Your projector is natively 1080p, so any signal you feed into it (like cable TV at 1080i) will automatically be scaled to the native resolution. The RS35 should do a pretty good job of this.
For the requirements you've listed, I don't think you'd gain much from adding a video processor. The Lumagen models have a full Color Management System which could aid in calibration, but you'd need to bring in a professional calibrator to get the most out of this, and the improvement would likely be subtle.
The Lumagens include a host of advanced features that are helpful for CIH, 3D, etc. If you're not going to take advantage of those, you probably don't need an expensive VP right now.
